Key Facts & Terms of Business

    To help you decide if our services are right for you.

    Products we offer

    We offer products covering a range of general insurances from a leading panel of insurers. Our panel ensures we are able to provide a fair and personal analysis of the market. The insurers on our panel are continually reviewed and kept adequately up-to-date. A list of these insurers is available on request.

    The service we provide

    We are an insurance intermediary who provide an advisory service. We act on your behalf, not the insurers, to establish your needs and recommend a product which matches those needs.

    The cost of our service

    We do not charge you a fee for our service. We receive commission directly from the insurer which is a percentage of the total annual premium.

    Who regulates us

    Usay Compare is a trading style of Usay Business Limited (“UBL”) which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. UBL’s FCA registration number is 478676 and UBL is authorised to arrange transactions in general insurance. Details can be viewed on the Financial Services Register at www.fca.org.uk or by contacting the FCA on 0800 111 6786

    Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS)

    UBL is covered by the FSCS and you may be entitled to compensation from the scheme if we are unable to meet our obligations. The advice and arrangement of insurance is covered for 90% of the claim with no upper limit. Further information is available at www.fscs.org.uk

    Disclosure of material information

    It is important for you to check and review the information provided to ensure it is accurate and that all material information has been disclosed. You must disclose any facts that are material to your application. If you do not disclose all material information this could result in the Insurer rejecting any subsequent claim. Please notify UBL immediately if any of the information sent to you is incorrect, incomplete or if any other changes are required.

    Registration of business documents of title

    We will register all business in your name unless otherwise agreed in writing. All contract notes and documents of title in respect of your financial transactions will be forwarded to you as soon as practicable after we receive them. Where a number of documents relating to a series of transactions are involved, these documents will normally be retained by us until the series is complete. All documents will be immediately logged in a register when received or issued.

    Records

    We shall supply to you on demand, copies of contract notes and any other evidence of transactions together with copies of any relevant manual or electronic records retained in respect of you. During our business hours and subject to reasonable notice, you may inspect your records. We retain records for a period of 7 years from the date of the last contract of insurance.

    Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII)

    As required by the FCA, we maintain PII for your protection in the event of any negligence on our part.

    Client money

    We do not handle client money. We recommend that all payments for the policies are paid direct by the policyholders to the insurers.

    Conflict of interest

    We offer independent advice, but occasions can arise where we or one of our other customers, will have some form of interest in business, which we are transacting for you. If this happens, or we become aware that our interests or those of one of our other customer’s conflict with your interest, we will inform you and obtain your consent before we carry out your instructions.

    Your instructions

    If at any time you wish to give us instructions relating to any forms of business, or alternatively, if you wish to terminate our business relationship, please inform us in writing, as this will ensure that no confusion arises between us. We will, however, accept oral instructions, which we will then confirm to you in writing. Written instructions to terminate your business relationship with UBL may be given to us at any time without penalty by either party.
